RSK welcomes leading fishing and engineering consultancy firm Fishtek

February 22, 2022

RSK Group Ltd, a global leader in the delivery of sustainable solutions, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Fishtek Ltd, a consultancy firm specialising in providing innovative solutions to the problems facing fish populations in freshwater and marine environments.

The Devon-based business is an industry leader in the design of fish and eel passes and provides fisheries consultancy and engineering services throughout the UK and further afield.

Established in 1999 by Pete Kibel, Fishtek works for charitable trusts, non-departmental public bodies and multiple customers within the water industry, and currently holds four framework agreements with the Environment Agency, Yorkshire Water, Affinity Water and Next Generation Consultancy Services, as well as preferred supplier status with South West Water.

Continuing to deliver its ambitious diversification strategy, RSK now comprises over 130 environmental, engineering and technical services businesses that work together to provide practical solutions to some of the greatest challenges societies have ever faced.

The group has had a particular focus on the water sector in recent years and is excited to explore synergies between Fishtek and sister companies such as Salix, cbec, Binnies and MWH Treatment.

Managing Director Pete Kibel and Technical Director Toby Coe will continue to lead the business as it enters the RSK group. Fishtek will also retain its brand identity, workforce and culture.

Ian Strudwick, RSK Board Director, commented, “Fishtek brings specialist fish and eel pass design skills to RSK’s water and riparian services, a highly sought-after niche specialism that RSK has previously outsourced.

“The team is incredibly talented and will no doubt be a great asset in the group. I look forward to working more closely with them and helping the business grow and develop under the RSK umbrella.”

Toby Coe added, “We are delighted to be joining the RSK group. We see this as a great opportunity to partner with a leader in the environmental and water industry. This acquisition will help Fishtek accelerate its growth and will enable us to offer a wider range of services to our existing (and new) clients.”

🌎 As a global leader in the delivery of sustainable solutions, we won’t shy away from our role in the huge task the world faces – this has guided our growth over the last year.

💚 We strive for sustainability in all that we do and our commitment to this has been reaffirmed in our FY22 sustainability report.

😮 Natural wetlands are disappearing three times faster than forests: 35% of global wetlands were lost between 1970 and 2015, and overall, 85% have been lost since the 1700s.

💧 It's #WorldWetlandsDay, which aims to raise awareness of the vital role of wetlands for people and the planet.

💚 We need to change our mindset around these essential habitats and their importance.
